David Tennant And Billie Piper Explain Why They’re Returning To Doctor Who

3 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Even when your favourite Doctor regenerates and leaves the show, the great thing about Doctor Who is that they’re able to come back at any point in time. Thanks to time travel, the Doctor can easily bump into his past selves now and then. Of course, it all depends on whether the actor wants to or not, but luckily for the Tenth Doctor’s legion of fans, David Tennant says he’s always willing to return to the sci-fi show.

Whether that’ll ever happen or not is up for debate – we wouldn’t rule it out, though – but in the meantime, we’ve got the next best thing coming our way, as the actor will be reprising the role for a new series of audio dramas he’s recorded with TV co-star Billie Piper Aka Rose Tyler for Big Finish Productions. Granted, it’s obviously not as exciting »

David Tennant Says He’s Always Happy To Return To Doctor Who

18 October 2017 11:07 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Even when your favourite Doctor regenerates and leaves the show, the great thing about Doctor Who is that they’re able to come back at any point in time. Thanks to time travel, the Doctor can easily bump into his past selves now and then. Of course, it all depends on whether the actor wants to or not, but luckily for the Tenth Doctor’s legion of fans, David Tennant says he’s always willing to return to the world of the sci-fi show.

In a recent interview with Doctor Who Magazine to promote a new series of audio dramas he’s recorded with TV co-star Billie Piper Aka Rose Tyler for Big Finish Productions, who also produce adventures starring Doctors 4-8, the actor described playing the iconic character as always “a happy place to be.”

“I always feel fond towards it. I always feel like it’s a happy place to be. »

October Horrors 2017 Day 1 – Alien (1979)

1 October 2017 4:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Alien, 1979.

Directed by Ridley Scott.

Starring Tom Skerritt, Sigourney Weaver, Veronica Cartright, Harry Dean Stanton, Ian Holm, Yaphet Kotto and John Hurt.

Synopsis:

The crew of the cargo ship Nostromo receives a distress signal from a nearby planet and while investigating, one of the crew is attacked by a parasite which implants an embryo in his body. This embryo soon gruesomely erupts from man’s body before escaping into the shadows, stalking and picking the remaining crew members off one by one.

It’s the 1st of October and you know what that means? It’s time to kick-start another series of October Horrors, the hopefully annual series (provided I don’t get fired between now and the 31st) in which I spend every day of this ghoulish month spotlighting cinematic horror from across the years. Well, mostly the 80s. Cause I like the 80s. A lot.

Fantastic Fest 2017 Interview: Udo Kier Talks Brawl In Cell Block 99 and Reflects on Suspiria

30 September 2017 9:47 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Last week, S. Craig Zahler’s Brawl in Cell Block 99 celebrated its Us premiere at the 2017 Fantastic Fest, and it also enjoyed its Los Angeles debut yesterday evening at the 2017 Beyond Fest at the historic Egyptian Theatre. Daily Dead recently had the opportunity to speak with one of Cell Block 99’s co-stars, the legendary Udo Kier, who discussed what drew him into the project initially and his thoughts on collaborating with Zahler.

And because Kier has enjoyed a career that has now spanned over five decades (with well over 200 titles on his résumé), we also asked him about creating memorable characters and his involvement with Dario Argento’s Suspiria, which is enjoying new life amongst fans with Synapse Films' 4K restoration.

Congrats on the film, Mr. Kier. It's really fantastic. What was it in particular about this character, who doesn't even really have a definite name in this, »

Mary Goldberg, casting director of films including “Amadeus” and “Alien,” died Sept. 7 at her home in Ojai, Calif., following a short battle with lung cancer. She was 72.

Comic Book Review – Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor Vol 6. – The Malignant Truth

5 September 2017 11:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Alex Moreland reviews Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor Vol. 6 – The Malignant Truth…

New adventures starring the Eleventh Doctor as played by Matt Smith!

The truth behind the Doctor’s possible-crime revealed! Shocking surprises in store for the Doctor’s companions! The thrilling chase resolved; every mystery unveiled! Don’t miss this final chapter where the Doctor and his companions face… The Malignant Truth!

Confession: I’ve fallen a little behind on the Eleventh Doctor comics.

Which meant that, when I read this collection of comics for review, I was a little bit out of my depth. If you’re looking for a jumping on point, this rather definitively isn’t it; it’s the conclusion of an ongoing arc, which picks up on and resolves quite a few different plotlines. If you’re looking for a Doctor Who graphic novel, probably best to go back to the beginning. »

New to Streaming: ‘Carrie,’ ‘Wonder Woman,’ ‘It Comes at Night,’ ‘Bottle Rocket,’ and More

1 September 2017 4:44 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Bottle Rocket (Wes Anderson)

Wes Anderson’s feature debut, the slyly comedic Bottle Rocket, positions its heroes, three young wannabe criminals with an eye for small-scale robberies, as blind innocents, lost in the unfamiliar world of adulthood. As part of his 75-year plan, Dignan (Owen Wilson) forms a gang, consisting of himself, Anthony (Luke Wilson) who’s fresh out of a voluntary psychiatric hospital, and Bob (Robert Musgrave) who »

Hellboy Reboot Gets Hemlock Grove Star Penelope Mitchell

30 August 2017 5:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just days after actor Ed Skrein exited Lionsgate's Hellboy reboot, due to concerns over "whitewashing," the project has added yet another member to its cast. Penelope Mitchell (Hemlock Grove) has just signed on to play a witch named Ganeida. It remains unclear if the studio is actively seeking actors to replace Ed Skrein, who backed out of the Major Ben Daimio role upon learning that the original character in the comics is a Japanese-American man.

Deadline reports that Ganeida is an elder witch who decides that the reign of terror caused by Nimue the Blood Queen (Milla Jovovich) has gone on long enough and tries to stop her. It's unclear if Ganeida ultimately joins forces with Hellboy (David Harbour) and his team of paranormal investigators to take down this medieval sorceress, but it seems likely. The Ganeida character had a similar arc in the 2011 comic Hellboy: The Fury, so »

"Twin Peaks," Episode 15 Recap: How Beautiful Is This

22 August 2017 11:23 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Twin Peaks Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering David Lynch and Mark Frost's limited, 18-episode continuation of the Twin Peaks television series.The best things come to those who wait, and Big Ed Hurley (Everett McGill) has long been dreaming of the moment that opens Part 15 of Mark Frost and David Lynch's Twin Peaks revival. "I've been a selfish bitch to you all these years," says his one-eyed wife Nadine (Wendy Robie), who's walked a long way—a Dr. Jacoby/Dr. Amp gold, shit-digging shovel slung over her shoulder—to the cash-only Gas Farm that Ed has run for most of his life. She states the obvious: Ed is in love with Rr Diner propietor Norma Jennings (Peggy Lipton), and she, Nadine, has always stood in his way. Those days are finally over. Ed is reluctant to think of this as anything beyond another of his spouse's manic episodes. »

Hellboy Reboot Adds American Honey Star Sasha Lane

15 August 2017 5:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just one day after a report surfaced claiming the new Hellboy reboot will feature the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense (B.P.R.D.) and comic book characters such as Abe Sapien, Alice Monaghan and Ben Daimio, the Alice character has been cast. Sasha Lane, the 21-year-old actress who made her breakthrough feature film debut with last year's American Honey, is in final negotiations to play Alice Monaghan, who in the original Mike Mignola comics was a love interest for Hellboy (David Harbour). It isn't clear at this time how many more major characters have yet to be cast, but this diverse ensemble is coming together quite quickly.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news on this casting earlier today, while also confirming a report from May that the Hellboy reboot starts filming in September. While it isn't clear who will play Abe Sapien or Ben Daimio quite yet, Sasha Lane »

Hellboy Title Confirmed, Will Completely Reboot Original Movie

9 August 2017 5:59 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, we reported that Milla Jovovich was in final talks to play The Blood Queen in Lionsgate's Hellboy reboot, which makes sense since the project was reportedly being called Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen. While the casting news was apparently accurate, news of the subtitle was not, since a Lionsgate rep reached out to us this afternoon, confirming the project will only be known as Hellboy. Here's what the rep had to say in a brief statement.

"The official title is just Hellboy. The film is considered a reboot of the 2004 Hellboy, and is going by the same name."

The Lionsgate rep didn't add any additional details about the project, and while the title may not be Rise of the Blood Queen, that certainly doesn't nullify Milla Jovovich's casting as this character. What is less clear at this point is if The Blood Queen is the same character »

Milla Jovovich Will Play Blood Queen In Hellboy Reboot

8 August 2017 11:13 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Deadline are reporting that none other than Milla Jovovich is in talks to play the villain in the forthcoming Hellboy reboot, Hellboy: Rise Of The Blood Queen. If cast, Jovovich will play the title character in the movie, which is being directed by The Descent and frequent Game Of Thrones director Neil Marshall.

David Harbour is playing the red cigar-chomping comic book hero, taking over things from Ron Perlman, who played Hellboy in Guillermo del Toro’s two previous big-screen adventures. Ian McShane is set to play Professor Bloom in the new movie, a role played by the late John Hurt in Hellboy and Hellboy II.

Filming is set to start imminently on the reboot, with the movie looking to arrive in cinemas in 2018. The word on the street is that it is set to be an R-rated affair with limited use of CGI, a fact which is sure to please fans. »

Milla Jovovich Sets Sights on Antagonist Role in Neil Marshall’s New Hellboy Movie

8 August 2017 2:15 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With her war against the Umbrella Corporation behind her (for now) in the Resident Evil franchise, Milla Jovovich is looking to take on a beloved demon in what could be her next movie.

Deadline reports that Jovovich is in "final talks" to play the Blood Queen, "a medieval sorceress" looking to put an end to humanity as we know it in the Hellboy reboot.

Back in May, it was reported that a Hellboy reboot was moving forward at Lionsgate and Millennium with Neil Marshall (The Descent) in the director's chair and Harbour (Stranger Things, Suicide Squad) playing Hellboy, who was portrayed by Ron Perlman in Guillermo del Toro's previous two films based on Mike Mignola's seminal comic book series.

In addition to Harbour, Jovovich would join Ian McShane in the cast, as it was recently revealed that the American Gods and Deadwood actor will play the role of Professor Broom, »

Ian McShane Brings Intensity & Legitimacy To Hellboy Reboot

2 August 2017 3:53 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Ian McShane is a revered and accomplished British actor whose career dates back to the early 1960s. His breakout role came in 2000, when he played the amoral, serpentine mob boss, Teddy Bass, in Sexy Beast, a brutal crime thriller that also starred Ray Winstone and Ben Kingsley (in one of his most thoroughly entertaining roles). American audiences probably knew him best as the infamous (and quasi-historical) Al Swearengen in David Milch's classic anti-Western Deadwood -- a role now firmly entrenched in American pop culture.

McShane is undoubtedly one of the greatest character actors working today, he's played everything from pirate to hitman to martial arts tiger to the Norse God Odin himself, all with one thing in common: they're all take-no-shit, total badasses! THR's announcement of McShane joining Neil Marshall's Hellboy reboot is absolutely huge news, which vaults this film to the top of my must-see movies of »
